Cisco Policy Based VPN - ProxyID Query

L0 Member

Hi everyone,


I am receiving the below error on a Palo to Cisco policy-based VPN.


'IKE phase-2 negotiation failed when processing proxy ID. cannot find matching phase-2 tunnel for received proxy ID. received local id: type IPv4_address protocol 0 port 0, received remote id: type IPv4_subnet protocol 0 port 0.'


Does the proxy-ID to crypto-map ordering make a difference (i.e do they have to match EXACTLY)?


Palo Alto Proxy-ID

PROXY-1 any

PROXY-2 any

PROXY-3 any

PROXY-4 any

PROXY-5 any

PROXY-6 any


Cisco Crypto-Map

permit ip host
permit ip host
permit ip host
permit ip host
permit ip host
permit ip host


Would the above configuration caused phase-2 to fail simply due to the ordering?


I appreciate any assistance

Hi @baz00r 


I read the article below and it says PA doesn't support policy based VPN.


Also, the KB below doesn't mention anything specific about order of proxy-ids.

Just talks about selecting PA as either initiator or responder when using multiple proxy-ids.

Hi Farzana,


They don't support policy based natively (I suppose initiating) but through the use of proxy-ID's they can accept and terminate policy based VPNS (in fact we have this working already with multiple clients).


But when we update the proxy ID configuration the phase-2 neg fails.


Thank you for those articles below, I had seen those before and unfortunately don't really shed any light on my specific issue. Thank you for your response though!!
